    My sister used to have a water bed which she somehow found a not-that-common standard sized mattress for after she decided to get rid of the waterbed in favor of a mattress. Anyway, the new mattresses is this weird size I've never even heard of before, called 'California King' and she wants some sheets for xmas.. Now I've never seen anything like this in the usual department stores, Macys, Sears, JC-Penneys, Fortuneoff, but then again, it's not like I'm looking for them every time I'm there. Can anybody recommend where I can find some sheets and stuff either online or locally? Do I have to find some small hidden-in-a-nook specialty linen place???

    Jay,

    California King is 4 inches longer and 4 inches narrower than regular king. While it is definitely not as common as other sizes, most better linen stores will carry some CK sheets.

    I thought from the title of this thread that it would be about rolling papers.
